It's looking great...maybe you can find room for Trespasser's Curse ? I would main board Kingpin's Pet for more extort plus it's another flyer. Consider Pillory of the Sleepless to nerf a big threat and add to the loss-of-life effects.

Thanks hkhssweiss!

I've replaced 3 of the enchantment removals Arrest , Stasis Snare and Pillory of the Sleepless in exchange for a bit more interaction with Utter End , Swords to Plowshares and Unmake . I'm also considering which card I'd want to let go of if I would like Blind Obedience or Authority of the Consuls to slow down the pace.

Thank you for your assistance ^^

Pestilence is a good example, though you need a creature like Guardian of the Guildpact to enable it.

Tortured Existence is a great example of a grindy enchantment.

While not an enchantment per se, Thorn of the Black Rose is something that gets you slower to the point you want to go to.

Pillory of the Sleepless , Grim Guardian are in the same vein.

There could really be an Orzhov enchantment control deck in the works.

The main deck looks better, I'd be tempted to add another sacrifice outlet Viscera Seer, probably just as a 2x, replacing Drana's Emissary.

Your sideboard, needs some work, possibly:

4x Invoke the Divine --> Anguished Unmaking (you have plenty of life gain)

2x Never Happened --> Ravenous Trap or Tormod's Crypt

2x Seal Away --> Journey to Nowhere or Pillory of the Sleepless

2x Squire's Devotion --> Bontu the Glorified or Trespasser's Curse

Your deck can't really be that consistent, since you run so few 4x, I suspect that's what you are perceiving as it being slow. That being said Pillory of the Sleepless over One Thousand Lashes and Grasp of Darkness over Executioner's Swing would be a start. Lands might be boring, but they are some of the most important cards in your deck, in order: Isolated Chapel == Concealed Courtyard -> Temple of Silence -> Orzhov Guildgate -> Evolving Wilds and that is just the budget options. Short version change Evolving Wilds to Orzhov Guildgate. You should probably consider adding Chalice of Life  Flip, but the space for that is dependent on what you do with your creatures, basically though that covers non-creatures...

Creature wise I have two not in your deck to recommend Lone Rider  Flip and Divinity of Pride, the Rider is brutal in a life-gain deck and Divinity ends games if not answered. You need to do something to make the creatures more consistent, try to pick five of them and run 4x of each, preferably scaled in mana cost, for example: 4x Soul Warden, 4x Lone Rider  Flip, 4x Vampire Nighthawk, 4x Rhox Faithmender, 4x Divinity of Pride. I'd probably have a setup something like that, but feel free to choose your own bodies... The point is choose the best bodies you can and run them in such a way that they are more likely to be in your hand. I hope this is of help, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Darth_Savage on A Blood Bond- (B/W life combo deck)

Not sure if Cliffhaven Vampire offers as much as you might hope, since the rules state: "The ability triggers just once for each life-gaining event, no matter how much life is gained." While you do need card draw, I'm fairly sure Night's Whisper or Phyrexian Arena are a better fit than Dawn of Hope, if you really want additional enchantments to help Blood-Cursed Knight I'd suggest Pillory of the Sleepless.

If the object is to stay alive while you build the combo then Souls of the Faultless might be of help, certainly it's on them. You also might be able to use Soul Spike (don't cast it use the exile clause) and Athreos, God of Passage. On the flip side if you wanted an alternative win condition then Divinity of Pride, Chalice of Life  Flip or even Lone Rider  Flip might have a place.

Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.
